Announcement text: Yes

check-parens is a simple program written in C++ to check LaTeX code for matching 
parentheses, etc. I wrote it because I got annoyed trying to find difficult to 
trace mismatched braces. It reports any errors/warnings with precise 
compiler-like line:pos numbers to ease finding LaTeX compilation problems as 
well as mismatches of parentheses in mathematical formulas. It also checks 
matching delimiter sizes (i.e. left, \big etc.).
